    Re: Hissssstory Extension

    Part 1 i was pretty happy with, i wrote about film/popular history too. Kinda freaking out about part 2 though, i went way overboard on part 1 (10 pages) and only had 40 minutes for part 2. Ended upwith only 4.5 pages. How screwed am i? Ugh so mad at myself cause this happened to me in paper 1 too, i went way overboard on the first 2 essays and ran out of time for the last one

    Part 1
    Source was solid with many little quotations to interweave with - generally argued against it, in particular the political part, going into public history, as well as the changing nature of evidence in judging history, external/internal pressures of the historian in their constructions, and the dynamic motives of the historian. 10 pages in 1hr 10min


    Part 2 - Crusades
    Very happy with this one. The quote from J. Llewellyen was almost exactly what I had addressed in my trials exam. The way I addressed it was I split Crusades historiography into three distinct periods, Early,Middle and Contemporary (It was more complicated than that dw). I then wrote about the changing approaches and also motives of historians within those time periods, talking about three historians for each period to show a "different number of historians" as per the quote. Managed to get out 10 pages in 50 minutes
